Download Tool Error Since Upgrade to 2018.1 - HTTP/1/1 405 Method Not Allowed


I recently upgraded from 11.0 to 2018.1 and after the upgrade, a workflow that included a Download Tool that had previously worked with 11.0 failed under 2018.1 with the following error:


HTTP/1.1 405 Method Not Allowed
Content-Encoding: gzip

My workflow takes a user provided url and tries to download the HTML from the page.   If downloaded successfully, it then goes about parsing the data.  Unfortunately, since the upgrade it no longer downloads the data. 


Has anyone run into this problem. 


I've attached the workflow

I have both versions of Alteyrx installed on my machine and it does not appear to work in 11.7 either.


I don't have Alteryx 11.0 so I cannot test on this.


Can you be certain that this still works on 11.0 and nothing changed on the end of the site? Are you able to access an environment with this verison still installed?




Hi Ben,


Thanks for your input on this.  Unfortunately, I had to uninstall 11 when I installed 2018.1.  I believe I was running 11.5 and I can confirm the script worked without any problems.  That said, it's still possible that something changed on the site, though when I reviewed the html in google developer yesterday it was not apparent.
